Crab Soccer

Descriptioncrab_soccer_014.JPG
This is a simple game based on soccer. It is great for when the field is too wet and you are restricted to inside. Like a small hall or classroom
The aim of the game is to score a goal just like in soccer, but you have to be on all fours with belly button facing the sky not the ground. Hence the Crab Soccer name, because when you are like this you will skitter like a crab.

Equipment
Medium rubber ball or soccer ball.
4 cones
Coloured team sashes or bibs (optional)
Set Up
In a small hall or empty classroom (or outside on a tennis court or concrete area) place two cones (1m apart) at both ends to form goals.
Split class in to 4 small teams. You will sub on and off teams so that every one gets a turn.crab_soccer_012.JPG
